“Matos.” I go by that because Michael is kind of cliché.

No, I don’t know. But I do know it was one of the most popular names in 1991.

The fact that I have two last names and one that no one can pronounce – Hoogliuter. I also speak fluid Spanish, which isn’t really unique, but it’s unique to Ottawa.

I like to stay in shape, run, event plan. I have my radio show, where I talk about relationships and topics people wouldn’t really talk about in Ottawa. But it’s all clean.

Bad layouts and designs. When I see bad posters, I think about how I would fix it. I don’t like bad drivers. I don’t like when people think I’m black; I’m Dominican.
